Author's notes

Fairly certain these are P. nutans rosette leaves. They have the same crinkled leaf edges as the P. nutans leaves I've seen at black mountain. Almost along side a group of D. revolutum which had all died off and finished flowering.

This is a significant sighting for Mount Majura Nature Park, I will return to the location fortnightly from now on to monitor how they develop and hopefully flower closer towards spring.

Yes, looks like rosettes of P. nutans. Should start flowering in July into early spring.
